Polytechnic Board of Trustees In 1974, the School and the Association were both born at the same time. Over the last 40 years, their stories have been intertwined and the Association has always been able to respond to the School’s needs. The Polytechnic Board of Trustees has acted as a tie between the world of business and the School. Initially, the function of the Board of Trustees was substitution, covering the things institutions did not. As far as possible, it wanted to offer the necessary support that the administrations could not or did not want to offer. It has always worked with the conviction that the School is an essential element to improve our companies. Luckily, since those initial times, the situation has changed substantially.
